Now is the time to upgrade to a more energy efficient refrigerator or washer — and let the government pick up part of the tab.
The state Department of Commerce has announced a last call for rebates on energy-efficient appliances through the Cash for Appliances effort. The program has helped more than 30,000 people upgrade to Energy Star appliances and more than $4 million in rebates.
The program ends after funds run out — and the money is fast disappearing.
Find complete program details — including eligibility requirements, qualifying appliances and the rebate application form — here. Cash for Appliances is open to all Washington residents.
The program offers cash rebates on Energy Star refrigerators, clothes washers, dishwashers, water heaters and ductless heat pumps. In most cases, consumers can receive additional incentives from gas and electric utility providers.
The federal Department of Energy funded the program and the state Department of Commerce acts as the administrator.
